Thursday, November 23rd - 10:00am

The Shippan Turkey Trot is celebrating its 17th year in the running this Thanksgiving morning.

The turkeys will trot from 280 Ocean Drive East - between Shippan & Fairview - on Thursday, November 23rd at 10:00 a.m.  

(*But be sure to get there early enough for costume appreciation and high fives!) In lieu of a registration fee, donations of canned food, checks or cash will be accepted. Click the Donate button below to make your donation today!

Donating will feel good. We promise!


We began raising donations for the Pacific House (formerly known as the Shelter for the Homeless) in Stamford, CT, seven years ago. Since that time, our turkeys have given over $53,000 in donations, along with a lot of canned food. Click the donate button above to donate today! 


Registering for the trot is by no means necessary. It's mostly for your records.  You will also notice there is no fee.  That's because 100% of the money raised goes to the meals program at the Shelter for the Homeless and we figured if you didn't have to pay to trot, you'd probably donate more to the cause. So register, if you want, but definitely donate, too!
